Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor press conference added to international fight week

June 22, 2016 8:52 am by Evan Bell

Initially, Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor were slated to have their highly anticipated welterweight rematch in the main event of UFC 200 on July 9th. McGregor refused to fulfill his media obligations for the event, and as a result was pulled from the card after briefly retiring.

Now, with the pair set to collide in a highly anticipated rematch on August 20th in the main event of UFC 202, the UFC has booked the pair to appear for a press conference prior to UFC 200 during international fight week.

The presser goes down July 7th at noon PT (3 p.m. ET) at the MGM Grand prior to UFC Fight Night 90, where Rafael dos Anjos will look to defend his lightweight title against Eddie Alvarez.
